“I’m not good enough. I’m not ready. I don’t belong here.” These are just a few of the things the Imposter Complex would have us believe (yes! there’s a name for that!) and this week I’m thrilled to have life coach and Imposter Complex expert Tanya Geisler back on the podcast to talk all about the Imposter Complex.
In this vintage episode, you’ll hear what it is, how it shows up, what it means if you experience these things (it’s good, I promise!) and how you can move beyond it to get all those things you want for your life (looking at you money, sex, and freedom!).
What She Said:
“Every great thing that we’ve ever done has been by feeling that fear and doing it anyway.”
“The ego wants to want more than it wants to get.”
“We have to have areas in our life where there has to be relief—where you can just rest and not have to be the best at things.”
